Full description

Enjoy a 50-minute hot air balloon over the Valley of the Kings, the world’s most important archaeological site, lit up by the changing colors of the sunrise. Watch as the balloon begins to stand up and board with the assistance of the ground crew. 

After a gentle takeoff, you’ll become one with the wind and lose the sensation of motion. Get lost in the tranquility of ballooning, disturbed only by the noise of the burners.

Take in breathtaking views of Luxor and all its ancient temples and tombs. See the lives of farmers and other locals as you glide over fields where people irrigate their land, gather crops, and care for their animals. 

To ensure all passengers have an equal opportunity to see and snap some amazing photos, the pilot will be sure to rotate the balloon during the flight. Finally, your guide will teach you the proper landing position and land expertly in an empty field or desert.

Amazing experience! Ramadan and team were helpful right from the meet up till the drop off. They take care to ensure each of the passengers are happy. We had to wait for the airports approval for quite a while as it was a bit breezy, but atlast we got it by 6am, and the team were right on the money to jump in and take off as soon as possible. Will highly recommend booking this if you plan to visit Luxor

A magical flight over the Valley of the Kings, supervised by a team at the top and caring for all of us. Our pilot Captain Bakr showed us all the temples we could see from the air. It was just a beautiful and unique moment, with the sunrise coming to top it off. I 100% recommend this activity if you go through Luxor, you will not be disappointed.

Ramadan & the team from Hod Hod Soliman hot air balloons made our trip unbelievebly amazing! They were so kind and kept us informed when we arrived into Luxor. In the air, Captain Omar described the sights and how hot air ballooning works. I would highly recommend booking with Ramadan @ Hod Hod Soliman!
